The first major museum exhibition of the work of Ruth Asawa (1926–2013) since 2006, Ruth Asawa: Life’s Work is also the first ever outside the West Coast, where the artist lived and worked for six decades. This landmark career-spanning show brings together some eighty works, comprising nearly sixty sculptures from the full trajectory of her career—including looped-wire, tied-wire, electroplated, and cast works—as well as twenty drawings and collages, some of which date back to her years at Black Mountain College, where she studied with Josef Albers, who inspired her interest in materials as generators of form. Together, the works in the exhibition will provide new insight into Asawa’s innovative contributions to the field of modern and contemporary sculpture, shedding light on her highly distinctive vision, which she achieved with a stunning deftness of hand and economy of means.
